REGINALD BLOUNT, Plaintiff,
SUPERIOR COURT OF SACRAMENTO COUNTY, et al., Defendants.
LAWRENCE K. KARLTON, District Judge.
On April 24, 2013, petitioner filed a motion the court construes as a request for reconsideration of the court's April 12, 2013 order dismissing this case. A district court may reconsider a ruling under either Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e) or 60(b). See Sch. Dist. Number. 1J, Multnomah County v. ACandS, Inc. , 5 F.3d 1255, 1262 (9th Cir. 1993). "Reconsideration is appropriate if the district court (1) is presented with newly discovered evidence, (2) committed clear error or the initial decision was manifestly unjust, or (3) if there is an intervening change in controlling law." Id. at 1263.
After reviewing plaintiff's motion for reconsideration, it is clear there is no valid basis to reconsider dismissal of this action. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's April 24, 2013 motion for reconsideration is denied.
